    Here is a pic of her. We just got home a little while ago. My mom wanted to name her Onyx. It is some type of Spiritual crystal so I figured why not.

    Also I forgot to mention that Onyx's parents were imported from I forget what country but I thought that was cool. Well his friend got them from a different country and he was given eggs so he hatched them and we got this girl. Even Bev Davis wanted these BCMs so she got these birds too. So Bev has these on her line now.

    What a beautiful lady! [​IMG] I love the name, too.

    Remember to quarantine her for several weeks so that you know for sure that she is safe to add to your flock.

    Great!!! can't wait to see an egg! You MUST post a pic when you get an egg! Hopefully you can remember or ask the seller what country they came from and who the importer was. That is important info to us marans nuts! might make your eggs valuable! did you get a rooster too?

    Quote:I will post a pic of her first egg. She should be laying soon because she is 6-7 months old. We did not buy a roo but I must say the ones he was selling are beautiful!!! Bucky is going to be our only roo. But f we needed a roo then we defenitly would have gotten one of his.
